This fonds consists of photocopies of the original minute book of the Grand Harbour Branch, New Brunswick Women's Institute. The group began by discussing recipes and moved on to sidewalks, street lights, park improvements, cemetery improvements, a public hall, and a public library. Park improvements, cemeteries, schools, knitting, and quilting committees were soon organized and members reported on those activities at each meeting. These projects were set aside as the war began and reports on war efforts in support of soldiers began. The group met in the Newton's Store in Grand Harbour. There is a reference in the minutes of 1914 that a branch of the organization was also functioning at Seal Cove.
